Perfectionist is one word that describes him best, you guessed it right, we’re talking about none other than Aamir Khan.This time, Aamir will not only be the onscreen talent, but also behind the camera, as a producer.
Siddharth Roy Kapoor, under his new banner, RK Films, plans on co-producing a film based on Rakesh Sharma’s journey of being the first Indian to enter space in 1984.
Having co-produced blockbuster hits like ‘Lagaan’, ‘Rang de Basanti’ and ‘PK’, one can only expect sheer perfection out of Aamir Khan.
The movie is said to be directed by Mahesh Mathai and will be releasing in 2018. However, the title of the biopic still remains a mystery. The story is set during Indira Gandhi’s reign and will revolve around Rakesh Sharma’s life, his struggle and experience of entering space and making his country proud by earning the title of the first Indian man to enter space.
Rakesh Sharma’s journey will not only serve as a token of his remembrance but it will also inspire others. Having the well-deserved reputation of being fairly consistent and focused, no other actor could have been a better choice than Aamir Khan.
